Electric Forest presents the 2013 Summer Solstice celebration at Kohinur Hall on Saturday December 21.

Electric Forest events create a unique festival atmosphere where self-expression, freedom and personal journeys can meld into a positive life-affirming experience through dance within an immersive multimedia environment.

After many years of summer solstice parties, festivals and electronic music events in the hills of Byron Bay and surrounds Electric Forest aims to keep the underground sound of Byron Bay well and truly on the map and rekindle the passion for these memorable gathering.

Featuring Slinky, who is currently working on remixing and original production projects, Slinky has become a name synonymously associated with good music and, in particular, breakbeat. Crafting out a nifty career in this genre for the last 15 years, he has toured the globe playing at some of the biggest clubs, best festivals and coolest cities.

Then there’s DJ Vortex – raised by monks in a monastery on the outer Gulf Islands of BC. Trained by Ninja Breakbeat Monkeys in a secret space station, rumoured to be immortal but only in leap years, the man is aloof.

His name has appeared on the same fliers as too many famous people to list here. So underground you will need to dig deep to find any information on him. He’s both members of the production duo Crook & Slack.

And of course DJ Soundwave – producer, DJ and label owner of 3rd Eye Productions, from Byron Bay and renowned for his sound of tight, rolling basslines and funky melodies. With state-of-the-art sound, stunning digital projections and lighting from Crystal Grid.

Tickets are $20 on the door.

Vegetarian Solstice feast catered for by Vego Gone Troppo. Delicious samosa, spring rolls, salad, cake, coffee and chai. From 7pm.
